More than $3,000 will be handed out to those winning awards at the event, which includes a Quick Draw. Organizers say artists can bet on foggy mornings and sunny afternoons in Alameda, which is in the San Francisco Bay Area. “Our island offers a wide variety of subjects to paint: historic Victorian homes and business districts, beaches with San Francisco views, the industrial Port of Oakland on the estuary, ships including the U.S.S. Hornet at the Naval Air Station, marinas, and boatyards, bridges, beautiful city and regional parks, all in a compact space that is easy to get around,” the Frank Bette Art Center says in its marketing materials.
